in less than an hour. mr. ryan has never debated in a world wide forum. while mr. biden has. so it is crunch time for the congressman. mitt romney and the republicans are counting on ryan to continue the momentum and to at least parry anything vice president biden says. can he do it? that is the drama of the debate in kentucky this evening. since the campaign began, the obama team has not dealt with the media very much. even though the media loves the president. the last white house news conference, seven months ago! can you believe it? mr. obama does some soft news, like the late night shows and the view. but rarely sits for policy interviews. i've interviewed the president twice. but indications are he will dodge "the factor" this year. we hope he doesn't. he wants to reach independent voters, this is the place. obviously any interview he does with us will get world wide attention. vice president biden is even worse in the serious media. he's done few national tv interview views and rarely does he talk to local tv people. he's never been on "the factor," although i will talked
bailout. >> when mr. ryan said that romney was a car guy, i thought well if they have them in an elevator, i guess he was. >> reporter: for a group of undecided voters put together in virginia, a split decision. this voter thought mr. biden won. >> the vice president did. >> why? >> i think he came off as being very strong, emotional, and i like the looking at the camera and talking to the american people. >> reporter: another, paul ryan. >> vice president joe biden was being kind of immature, with a lot of the snide -- he sneered and everything. >> reporter: and take a look at this photo, at the very top, no apology, followed by egyptian people, and alq. an interesting night, brian >> reporter: while he spends a lot of time in ohio, as polls show, now the democrats once with a wide lead, now within striking distance. >> ron mott in ohio, thank you, starting us off. >>> the argument over what happened in the libya attack and what the administration has been saying about it publicly became the issue of this the day after the debate. our political director, chuck todd with more at the white
ads. vice president biden interrupting and being disruptive while mr. ryan was trying to talk to us was very disruptive to me, but i don't feel mr. ryan answered questions. >> and our coverage continues right now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. we're in the cnn election center for a come on hennive look at how paul ryan did in this debate. we're releasing the results of the poll of debate watchers. who won tonight? john berman continues to pore through the candidates' answers. erin burnett stands by. when they gave the candidates highest and lowest marks. we expected a lively debate and we got it. congressman ryan argued forcefully for changes in the program and said it will go bankrupt. and he said the president's health care reform plan makes things worse. >> look what obama care does. it takes $716 billion from medicare to spend on obama care. even their own chief actuary says you can't claim this goes to medicare and obama care and then they cut medicare each and every year in
detailed isss and show his command of the issues. mr. ryan's answer is, as comprehensive as he was allowed to be, not a game changer but joe biden was on offense. a >> i remember him saying that nothing he just said was true. this is something the democrats have been clamoring for since last week. >> huffing and puffing suggesting that he was obating and not able to proposals.romney's and are the details that are consistent with the facts. spinning has already begun. the campaign manager making the argument that mr. ryan was unable to explain the details and defend them among the various proposals. senior adviser to the romney campagin in that joe biden was not able to defend the president's record. both sides making their cases aggressively, and no knockdown, but some very tough uppercuts. >> and that leaves us for a week from matter at the university that could be a game changer. >> absolutely. >> a quick commercial break and we'll come back for a little more analysis >> historically speaking, vice- presidential candidates are there to be attack dogs. and historically speaking, vice pres
continue the tax cut for the super wealthy. >> mr. ryan. >> ryan: you know what the unemployment rate in scranton is today? >> biden: i sure do. >> ryan: it was 8.5% when you came in. >> biden: look that's not how it is going. it is going down -- >> two-minute answer please. >> ryan: did they come in and inherit a tough situation? absolutely. [ laughter ] >> ryan: but we're going in the wrong direction. look at where we are. the economy is barely limping along. it is growing at 1.3% that's slower than it grew last year job growth in september was slower than it was in august and august was slower than it was in july. we're heading in the wrong direction. 23 million americans are struggling for work today. 15% of americans are living in poverty today. this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for real recovery. and that's exactly what mitt romney and i are proposing. get america energy independent. help people who are hurting get the skills they need to get the jobs they want. get the deficit under control. make trade work for america, and cha
, he knows his facts. do you think this is going to be a washout and that mr. ryan is literally going to trounce biden? >> i was pretty amused by that story, martin, because we were at a paul ryan rally. these are not exactly neutral observers. i suspect they're part of that 90%, 95% i was talking about before, people who observe conservative media and some of those lines they were given there sounded like they were -- they had been previously announced by conservative talk show hosts, but the fact is that this works to biden's benefit because it lowers expectations. there are people who only hearing the jay leno punch lines about joe biden who think he is a bumbling idiot, and here is a guy who has had something like four decades in the senate. people who don't have short memories remember how well he stood up with sarah palin at a time when the question was he had to be impressive without looking like he was picking on her. he played it just right, and i think he knows how to play this situation just right, and paul ryan at the same time has to be careful not to get too wonkish here
was holding a press conference. that's not presidential leadership. >> mr. ryan, i want to ask you about the romney campaign talks a lot about no apologies. he has a book called "no apologies." should the u.s. have apologized for americans burning korans in afghanistan? should the u.s. apologize for u.s. marines urinating on taliban corpses? >> oh, gosh yes. urinating on taliban corpses. >> burning korans? >> what we should not apologizing for is standing up for our values or saying to the egyptian people that mubarak is a good guy and the next week say he ought to go. we should not reject claims for calls for more security. we need marines in benghazi when the commander on the ground says we need more forces for security. there were requests for extra security. those requests were not honored. look, this was the anniversary of 9/11. it was libya. a country we knew we had al qaeda cells there, as we know al qaeda and its affiliates are on the rise in northern africa. and we did not give our ambassador in benghazi a marine detachment? of course there's an investigation so we can make sure
not to be aggressive. so i think each side can claim victory. the poll shows it's fairly close. i think mr. ryan proved that he was vice presidental material, but i think what people are going to remember is the vice president's mannerisms. that's what people are talking about, that's what can be pari paritied and so forth and they were very distracting. jenna: how do you think this conversation we heard last night will affect the conversation moving forward, the strategy of either party going into the debate next tuesday in new york. >> i think it will show president obama that he can be forceful. it will show him don't be forceful in a wacky way because it will take away from it. he is the president, he has to have some kind of r way it will make him a lot more forceful and energetic in trying to attack mr. romney about his plans. jenna: if you know this is the model that potentially could be coming towards mitt romney then how would you advice mitt romney? >> here is the thing. i think it will be the model, governor romney will face a more energetic president. i think there is a risk for the preside
responsibility. >> mr. ryan. >> joe and i are from similar towns. he is from scranton, pennsylvania. i'm from janesville, wisconsin. do you know what the unemployment rate in scranton is today? it is 10%. you know it was the day you guys came in? 8.5%. >> it is going down but >> just a two-minute answer, please. >> today and heaough situation? absolutely. we're going in the wrong direction. look at where we are. the economy is barely limping along. it is growing at 1.3%, slower than it grew last year and last resort in the before. job growth in september was slower than it was in august, and august was slower than a was in july. we're heading in the wrong direction. 23 million americans are struggling for work today. 15% of americans are living in poverty today. this is not a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for real recovery, and that is exactly what mitt romney and are proposing. it is a five-point plan get america energy independent in north america by the end of the decade. help people who are hurting get the skills they need to get the jobs they want. get this deficit and d
's not presidential leadership. >> moderator: mr. ryan, the romney campaign talks about no apologies. should the u.s. have apologized for americans burning korans in afghanistan? should the u.s. apologize for u.s. marines urinating on taliban corpses? ryan: we should not apologizeing for our values, and we should not be doing the egyptian people, that mubarak is a good guy, and then the next week, he ought to go. we should not reject claims for calls for more security in our marines. we need ma reaps in ben-gay -- benghazi. there were requests for extra security. those requests were not honored. look, this was the anniversary of 9/11. it was libya, a country we knew we had al-qaeda cells there. as we know, al-qaeda and its affiliates on the rise in north africa, and we didn't give the ambassador in benghazi a marine attachment? of course there's an investigation to ensure it doesn't happen again, but when it comes to speaking up for the values, we should not apologize for those. here's the problem. look at the various issues out there unraveling before our eyes. the vice president -- >> moderator:
. america needs more of that. these are happy warriors. mrs. ryan went over and talked to the vice president. and we need more of that in washington and across america. people who can have a spirited debate, disagree on just about everything and then shake hands, say hey, how are you doing? >> i got the sense that joe biden enjoyed the debate. >> we talked about this at the beginning. a leading compassionate conservative voice and a leading compassionate liberal voice, but they respect the other side. they both did what they wanted to do the democrats are happy. look at the twitter verse, read e-mail, democrats were despondent, dispirited, in the first debate. happy tonight. he showed his boss what it is to engage, engage, engage. paul ryan came in, had to defend mitt romney. had to prove he was president. god forbid if he was president. there wasn't a wipeout in this debate. both sides came in, thinking we'll leave prosecute what we have to do. >> let's go to our panelist, joe biden. >> show me a policy where you take responsibility. by the way, the great recession, it fell out of the sky i
's not presidential leadership. >> moderator: mr. ryan, i want to ask you about the romney campaign talks a lot about no apologies. he has a book called "no apologies." should the u.s. have apologized for americans burning qurans in afghanistan? should the u.s. apologize for u.s. marines your mating on taliban corpses? ryan: oh, gosh, yes. your mating on taliban corpses? what we should not be apologizing for are standing up for our values. what we should not be doing is saying to the egyptian people while mubarak is cracking down on them that he's a good guy and then the next week say he ought to go. what we should not be doing is rejecting claims for calls for more security in our barracks, in our marine -- we need marines in benghazi when the commander on the ground says we need more forces for security. there were requests for extra security. those requests were not honored. look, this was the anniversary of 9/11. it was libya, a country we knew we had al-qaeda cells there as we know al-qaeda and its affiliates are on the rise in northern africa, and we did not give our ambassador in benghazi a ma
"the new york times." if mr. biden was sometimes openly emotional, a hot onscreen presence, mr. ryan, 27 years his junior was cooler, often coming off confident and fluent in the policy underlying his arguments." if the most important thing is people watching at home say i could see him one heart beat away from the presidency, did paul ryan accomplish that? >> i don't think he did. again, what we saw last night, what i think american voters saw last night is somebody who is thin on the issues, who is grasping at talking points, trying to go for glib answers instead of actually answering questions. paul ryan was asked if he would support justices on the supreme court that would overturn roe versus wade this. should be a simple question. he refused to answer. things like that should put deep questions into the minds of american voters how he would handle women's health issues, the economy. i couldn't say how he would pay for the $5 trillion tax cut the republicans put forward for the wealthiest americans. one of your panelists said if you read through the transcript on issue after issu
it was not on camera. romney and ryan reunite tomorrow in ohio. president is at the white house. mr. ryan in preparation for tonight's debate had nine debate rehearsals and they think he is ready to go against biden this evening. bret? >> bret: carl cameron in spin room. see you there in a few minutes. thank you, carl. how will tonight's debate impact the race? let me know on twitter. follow me. @bretbaier. new issues for two of the president green energy pet projects. i.r.s. is proposing a bankruptcy settlement for solyndra saying it's a dodge to avoid taxes. house committee wants to know what the energy department knew about problems with panels made by now bankrupt abound solar. the company received half a billion dollars apiece in taxpayer funded loan guarantees. the dow's losing streak continueed today. it lost 19. s&p 500 goes up a fraction. nasdaq dropped two. 14 people have died from the meningitis outbreak now. the cdc says 170 people have been sickened. that is 33 more cases and two more deaths since tuesday. agency estimates 14,000 people could be at risk. this outbreak has bee
into this rally here. mr. ryan took the president to task on that delay of the deadline two days from now for its determination on china and postponing it after the election and ryan called it another example of the press's refusal to do the necessary steps to jolt the economy back into a surge and create more jobs, particularly here in ohio where the manufacturing industry has taken such a hit and i postponing it after the election ryan suggested there's clearly an absence of leadership based on politics. watch. >> you have to stand up for the american manufacturing system. giving good speeches, you know, saying the right things, that sounds good, but getting it done is what matters. we are going to get it done because we know you need to have a strong manufacturing sector to have a strong america. >> paul ryan got some pretty good props for the debate performance the other night in the vice presidential contest but for the most part it wasn't considered to be a game-changing debate in any sense. so the onus is even further on the president to change the trajectory of a what was widely to be mit
to say. he will try to be very aggressive. i think mr. ryan will do a good job. host: our coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. eastern time to read the debates at 9:00 on thursday. then you look at is your reaction at 10:30 p.m. eastern time. on c-span, c-span radio, and c- span.org, live on thursday. here is what the joe biden camp is saying about paul ryan. "congressman ryan has a choice to make thursday, either stand behind the extreme positions he has been the face of for years, and that governor romney has fully embrace like turning medicare into a voucher program and cutting taxes for the wealthiest few at the expense of the middle class, or deny their existence as governor romney did in last week's did a." guest: at least the republicans are trying to solve a problem. here is what the vice president refuses to acknowledge -- medicare is going broke. that's not what i say, that is what the medicare and social security trustees that are responsible for the program are saying. medicare is going to go broke in eight years unless something is done. so mr. ryan and the house republicans stepped
